    Great looking legs. Question for you. I noticed you only had a small amount of lump in the egg. I think I tend to put too much in all my cooks. How do you judge how much lump rouse per cook?

    Unless you are pushing it to one side to create a direct and indirect zone (which is pretty much impossible except for the XL) you just fill to the top of the ring and control the temperature.

    This one was on a LBGE and I cooked on the night before.  There was plenty of lump left over for tonight, so I just stirred it and lit it.

    You never have to judge how much lump. unless you are running out, you just need to fill it up and  control temperature.

    I am comfortable enough with my manhood that I can tell another man: Those are some great looking legs you have there!

    I was trying to figure out your setup to get a raised grid. Is the grid sitting on a Spider? TIA.

    Smoke or no smoke? I usually put the tray under my rack, do you find it's better direct?

    Are you using the PSWoo3 for raised direct?

    Direct, with what I think is an older style Woo.  I don't remember any number associated with it, and it has nothing adjustable.

    i have searched just about every store that allegro says it is sold at here and no one has the hot&spicey.  all they have if anything at all is the original.
  • I favor Dichickos for most things, and use teriyaki on some smokes, but the Hot & Spicy is just perfect for legs, and is pretty darned good on "London Broil".
